Chris Christie: ‘Even in New Jersey what you’re doing is called rude’

When CNBC anchor John Harwood kept interrupting New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s answer to a question, he had to stop and give the moderator a piece of his mind.

The question was what to do about climate change.

“We don’t do what John Kerry, and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama want to do, which their solution is put more taxes on and they will fix it. there is no evidence they can fix anything in Washington, D.C.,” he said.

Harwood interrupted, “What we should we do,” and Christie replied that we should take an all-of-the-above approach to energy.

When Harwood interrupted again, Christie’s hackles rose.

“No, John, Do you want me to answer or do you want to answer?” drawing laughter from the audience. When it began to subside, Christie continued calling out Harewood.

“Because I got to tell you the truth, even in New Jersey what you’re doing is called rude.”

Christie tweeted a video of the exchange, and his supporters came out in full force to show their appreciation:

It’s clear that the big winners Wednesday night were all the Republican presidential candidates. The big losers were the CNBC panel of moderators.
